Why Do We Suffer and Wait as Christians?

The Bible in various places teaches that we will get good results (rewards) for doing good, and bad results (punishments) for doing evil. For example in Romans 2:5-11 God, 6 who “will render to each one according to his deeds”: 7 eternal life to those who by patient continuance in doing good seek for glory, […]

The Doctrine of Hell does more to Move people to Ethical Behaviour than many think

We've heard a lot that as we tell people how forgiving, sweet and loving God is, people will just want to change. I think its only partly true. The Bible is usually wiser than men. The things we LEAVE out in our preaching and teaching are usually very important for us and for our lives. Things like the awful doctrine of HELL.

Is there a foundation for ethics in a world without God?

Definitions: by God here I mean an eternally existing,
sovereign, Personal Being who created all things, and who is the ultimate
lawgiver and judge of all things.

By ethics  I mean a system of ideas concerned with
defining what is morally “right” and “wrong”. Alternatively, ethics is
concerned with what we “should” or “should not” do.

The question of ethics is important to everyone, because we all live
in a world where we are vulnerable to pain. The actions of others have
the potential to bring us satisfaction, or they can hurt us.

Antinonmianism

Antinomianism, which literally means “against or instead of law,”
holds that there are no binding moral laws, that everything is relative.

Streams of Antinomianism in the ancient world

Processism: Ancient Greek philosophers Heraclitus and Cratylus, looking
to the physical world of nature pointed out that nothing is ever the same,
everything is changing.
